Argument: Arizona law creates environment of fear and recrimination
Raul A. Reyes. "Arizona's un-American immigration law." Los Angeles Times. April 28th, 2010: "many of Arizona's roughly 2 million Latinos are wondering about how this law will affect their personal freedom. They are concerned for their children's safety. They are searching for identification documents for older relatives. Many Latinos, no doubt, will be afraid to venture out without 'papers,' even if they are legal residents or U.S. citizens. This type of fear has no place in our society."
"Arizona's wrongheaded law." Miami Herald Editorial. April 27th, 2010: "The potential harm the law will inflict on innocent American citizens creates an environment of fear that undermines respect for law enforcement and breeds resentment and ethnic divisions."
